“Exceptional Experience in Montreal”
Reviewed 13 May 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I am an experienced traveller and review reader-I only choose places to stay based on 4 and 1/2 or 5 star reviews. If it were possible, I would give Julie and Alain's apartment 6 stars. Not only are they wonderful down to earth hosts who provide an exceptionally clean and high quality environment as so many other reviews have already mentioned, but they are extremely helpful and respectful people. It starts when they respond to requests to rent their apartment very quickly. They do not let days go by as so many other vacation rental owners do, which can be very frustrating. They are also unlike so many other owners who simply leave the keys in a key box and communicate only via email or phone during the stay. Instead, they are always there to help and lend a hand however they can. I came to Montreal to work on a project and had an entire car load of materials and heavy equipment to unpack. Julie and Alain met me when I arrived as if they were waiting for me, and helped bring everything upstairs. They supplied an extra folding table for my use, and even saved a parking space for my car, as it can be a tad difficult to find a space to park on their particular block (although I always found a place on Rue Sicard, one block down between Rue Hochelaga and Rue Rouen). I am used to parking in Brooklyn, so Rue Sicard was quite easy, comparatively speaking.

The area where they live is right down the street from the Olympic Stadium and Botanic Gardens, a lovely area to take a stroll and visit. There are two metro stations within minutes walking distance of the apartment that take you all over Montreal. There is also the Marche' Maisoneuve conveniently located very nearby, as well as many restaurants on Rue Ontario Est-all very close. Dinner at Etats Major was fabulous, and they are open every day, which is great. Delicious food and modern ambiance at a very affordable price. Julie will supply a map of the area with all of these as well as other points of interest mapped out for you.

I wound up staying for 6 weeks instead of my original 4, and had a truly rewarding and relaxing experience. Julie and Alain are just incredibly nice and thoughtful people. I shall miss them and their amazing hospitality and will definitely stay at their apartment when I come back to Montreal, which I hope will be very soon.

Very clean, bright and well located close to attractions. Hosts are very kind and helpful; had lots of info on the city and attractions. Provided a little welcoming gift! The location is close to a metro but is very quiet. The price is excellent.

Julie & Alain were very good hosts. They welcomed us with all kinds of information about Montreal and fun things for our teenagers to do. The apartment was modern, spacious, comfortable & spotless with everything we needed. Great location! Definitely a gem.

The appartmeny was very nice and perfect for our family. The owners thought about everything. Very convenient location for families visiting the Biodome, Jardin Botanique, Planetarium. Also the metro station is very close so it's easy to visit other parts of Montreal. We would definitely come back.

I had the pleasure of staying in Alain and Julie's beautiful apartment for 3 nights during a 4 day trip to Montreal sightseeing. They could not have been more gracious hosts, from the beginning to the end even though we had to leave at an early time on a Sunday morning to catch a bus. From the beginning we were greeted like long lost friends and shown around the apartment, given tips and maps of local sights and of Montreal as a whole.The apartment itself is huge and beautifully decorated and has everything you would need for a short or a long stay. The location is perfect, on a quiet street 2 mins to a subway station and steps from Olympic Park and the Biodome. I would recommend anyone coming to Montreal to try and see if can book this apartment for your stay as you will not be disappointed.

Great apartment, great hosts, great location. From the time we arrived Alain and Julie made us feel very welcome. The apartment is immaculate, comfortable and warm. Very convenient to the subway and other essentials are close by.
Thankyou both so much, hopefully we can visit again one day.
